CMS Releases New ACO Case Studies
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released three new case studies describing innovative programs from Medicare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). The case studies feature ACO initiatives related to:
- Promoting staff development through leadership academies
- Conducting home visits
- Engaging providers
The case studies highlight ACOs participating in the Next Generation ACO Model and the Medicare Shared Savings Program. Each case study includes detailed results and describes lessons learned by the ACO during implementation. By sharing the stories, CMS hopes to help current and future Medicare ACOs, and other providers and entities, find new ways to make care better, people healthier, and spending smarter.
For more information on these case studies, and to view past case studies and the ACO Toolkit on Care Coordination, please visit the CMS ACO General Information web page.
